Conflicting advice on reqs for Transit Visa in China. Correct answer?

Jump to last reply

I have googled this topic and find conflicting comments. I don't find anything on China's FAQ site for its Embassy to the USA that reassures me. The Chinese consulate's number I've called rings busy the whole time.

Do I need a transit Visa for China under the following facts?

--I am a United States citizen.
--My U.S. passport is valid for several more years.
--This December, I depart from Los Angeles arriving in Beijing on a Saturday.
--I then change planes in Beijing, departing for Bangkok.
--My layover time in Beijing is less than 4 hours.
--I am not exiting the airport for any reason.
--My flight to Beijing is a United flight operated by Air China.
--My flight out of Beijing to Bangkok is a United flight opearted by Air China.

Sorry if my question is old hat to some of you, but, given the situation, I don't want to assume too much and find I've got a major problem in China and unable to complete my trip.
